Gardeners on alert
For folks that have got a jump on growing season, you'll need to have the covers ready for action Wednesday night. Unless you can see or smell the ocean from your planting point, chances are good that you may see some frost on the ground come Thursday morning. The trend has been consistent on this idea for several days now. I expect frost and/or freeze advisories to make the weather headlines Wednesday.
A soggy end to the week
Another trend that has been consistent has been this long wave frontal boundary on the way for Friday. Looks like 1/2"-1" of rain is possible with this one. The day appears to be a washout at this point, with drier weather working in for Saturday.
Outlook through Mother's Day
After a cool, breezy day on Wednesday and a chilly Thursday start, clouds increase ahead of the rain moving in for Friday. High pressure moves in Saturday and will bring breezy conditions and closer to seasonable temperatures. Mother's Day is in question for western and southern areas as for now there is a chance for afternoon showers, but confidence in that is low for now.
I will update on that as the weekend gets closer.
